(Free Bings - Special Reader Offer) Bing Go Street Food - 12 Jan 2015

Bing Go - Char Siu Bing

On my second visit to Bing Go Street Food at EnEx 100, I had the char siu pork bing which was really tasty with tender, flavoursome pork, stronger flavours via the Chinese sausage, contrasted against the pickled mustard vegetable, and a delicious sauce to tie it all together. The crepe and all ingredients are soft so the presence of the wantons provide a lovely crunch and textual contrast to each mouthful. The wantons also go perfectly in desserts as in the Shanghai Surprise I ordered. Combined with banana and Nutella, a dusting of icing sugar and whipped cream, it is a rather naughty treat to finish off the meal and left me really full, but very satisfied. . . . → Read More: (Free Bings – Special Reader Offer) Bing Go Street Food – 12 Jan 2015

Shiro Izakaya - 20 Mar 2015

Shiro - Chicken Katsu Set with Tempura

Since I first visited, Shiro have revamped the lunch set to offer a bit less for a cheaper price. The prior lunch set used to be like a mini three course meal which left you stuffed. I think these lunch time sets are more accessible and suited to people’s appetites and budgets. For the price, they’re great value, offer variety, choice, and quality. I really liked the delicious katsu sauce which significantly livened up the plain steamed rice. Along with the crunchy crumbed succulent chicken, the light crispy batter of the tempura, the soothing miso soup, and the refreshing garden salad and dressing, it made for a delicious meal. . . . → Read More: Shiro Izakaya – 20 Mar 2015

The Generous Squire - 19 Mar 2015

The Generous Squire - Lamb Ribs with Chipotle Barbecue Sauce

I did use the Entertainment Book to get a discount but for 3 dishes at a full price of $46, or $23 each, it’s pretty good value considering we got variety and some tasty food. I really liked the vegetable tart which had a lovely well balanced filling between the pumpkin and blue cheese. The slow cooked beef brisket was tender within the sliders though needed a bit of a boost in flavour and the tomato sauce helped moisten things up. The onion rings contained a lovely crunchy crisp light batter and were delicious. The lamb ribs were very tender and tasty and didn’t require the chipotle barbecue sauce. Lovely all round meal. . . . → Read More: The Generous Squire – 19 Mar 2015

Next Door @ No 4 Blake Street - 15 Mar 2015

Next Door At No 4 Blake Street - Beef Intercostal, Burnt Cauliflower, Parsley

No 4 Blake Street still presents fine cuisine at it’s restaurant, but has transformed a part of the restaurant into a casual wine bar with share plates of varying sizes called Next Door @ No 4. I went for this and there’s a feed me option (“Trust The Chef” at $50pp) where the chef selects bread, a couple of snacks, 2 of the smaller dishes, 3 of the larger dishes, and a dessert. This is a great option so you don’t have to worry about making the tough decisions. We received a nice variety of dishes which left us satisfied and comfortably full. The highlights for me were the crispy potato skins, duck and taleggio croquettes with hazelnut marmalade, and the beef intercostal. Casual, variety, taste, easy. A great option though a little pricey. . . . → Read More: Next Door @ No 4 Blake Street – 15 Mar 2015

Gourmandise & Co - 7 Mar 2015

Gourmandise - Quiches

The first quiche I dived into was a bacon and cheese quiche which was delicious. Lovely buttery pastry that is just divine encasing a lovely rich filling. I’m glad I ordered the sharp salad which took the edge off the richness. I really enjoy quiche and this was excellent. I also had a few bites of the smoked salmon quiche which is even better. I’ll save that for breakfast tomorrow along with a few other pastries I picked up. The next day I warmed the quiche up and it was amazing! I really love the flavour of the smoked salmon which is just like chunks of softened salmon, but with a smoky flavour, well complimented by the creamy avocado. I liked this quiche the best and also enjoyed my other pastries. . . . → Read More: Gourmandise & Co – 7 Mar 2015
